Mr Vitus Azeem, anti-corruption campaigner has called for the prosecution of controversial musician and sympathizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Asare Obeng, popularly known as A-Plus, for
According to him, A-Plus must be punished for allegations he cannot prove.
His comment comes at the back of the Criminal Investigative Department of the Ghana Police Service who has described as baseless the allegations of corruption levelled against two officials.
A-Plus has labeled deputy Chief of Staffs Francis Asenso-Boakye and Samuel Abu Jinapor as stupid and corrupt appointees.
Mr Vitus Azeem speaking on the development in an interview on Accra-based Citi FM said "I think we cannot leave it there because we should not allow people to make unsubstantiated claims against individuals and then go free. There should be some action taken."
He said "It is just for some personal reason that is why you did it. If you cannot prove it, It will not even help us at all in the fight against corruption."
Background to allegations
A-plus has descended heavily on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for appointing thieves into his government.
According to him, the seven months of President Akufo-Addo’s government have been good so far except for appointing two criminally minded people as Chief of Staff.
In a Facebook post, A-Plus who declared his support for the NPP wondered why the two personalities were appointed to serve in government.
He said "NPP delegate’s congress…. 7 months of NPP government. So far so good except appointing some very corrupt officials including the two very stupid deputy chief of staffs. It’s amazing how Nana was able to appoint thieves whose level of stupidity is the same. Arrogant and corrupt fools. You think you’ll be in power forever. Even John Mahama I was not afraid of him then you."
A-Plus, however, did not state the basis for his allegation.
Mr Asenso-Boakye had accused musician A Plus of "sheepishly" using social media to attack him and Samuel Abu Jinapor by tagging them as "thieves and corrupt arrogant fools."
